Performance testing vehicle powertrain modules via CAN logger
Case Studies / Aeristech
About: Aeristech develops electric air compressors for the automotive and other industries. Its products include electric superchargers and air compressors for hydrogen fuel cells
What problem did you solve?
We make devices for installation in vehicle powertrains to improve their operation. To analyse performance we wanted to log CAN bus data during road driving.
How did you solve it?
We used the CLX000 to record speed, RPM, manifold pressure etc. during road driving with/without our device turned on. Further, we developed a GPS-to-CAN module that allowed us to also record the exact position data with the CLX000
What benefit has this led to?
The CLX000 provided a very easy and low-cost method for showcasing the performance of our device and evaluating the operation in detail, allowing us to make improvements
"The CLX000 is very compact, cost-effective, reliable and easy to use"
Why did you choose the CLX000?
Mainly because it was much cheaper and simpler than similar devices (e.g. Vector)
